Bar Association of San Francisco Barristers Club Sections


The mission of the Barristers Litigation Section is to develop and maintain a strong community among Bay Area litigation attorneys in their first 10 years of practice.

The section is dedicated to fostering a professional network for younger litigators; hosting CLE classes and other programs that provide opportunities for professional development on topics of interest to its members; and fostering stronger personal and professional ties among its members and with the broader legal community through informal and formal social events.

If you would like to get involved in the Barristers Litigation Section, please contact one of the section co-chairs or members of the Executive Committee.
